    Rae Wellness: Holistically and Affordably Helping Women Become Their Best Selves

    Rae Wellness: Holistically and Affordably Helping Women Become Their Best Selves

    Angie Tebbe is the co-founder and CEO of Rae Wellness. A fruitful 13-year career at one of the world's most recognizable retailers, a lifelong commitment to well-being, and an endless thirst for knowledge led Angie to start Rae Wellness, a holistic wellness company that is committed to well-being for all by providing natural supplements at affordable price points.
    The North Dakota native grew up in a humble and holistic home. Angie's mother worked as a nurse, and her father had a deep passion for Eastern medicine. At a young age, Angie learned how to meditate and developed a curiosity for wellness. In 2018, a period of reflection sparked the idea of Rae Wellness. She gave up her title-holder role at Target, dusted off her father's books, and decided to pursue a new path.

    Listen to this Takin’ Care of Lady Business episode with Angie Tebbe about her company, Rae Wellness, Angie’s journey of growing the company, and their goals of affordable and holistic wellness and nutrition products for all.

    Here is what to expect on this week’s show:

    How Rae Wellness’s supplements help women in all areas of their wellness needs including stress, hormones, digestion, skin, sleep, and much more

    How after working for the Target Corporation for 13 years, Angie used her expertise in wellness, big box retailers, and her understanding of the ethos behind company brands to help women become their best selves

    How Angie set out to solve the whitespace in the wellness market: Companies only cater to the “1%”

    The importance of breaking down a five-year business plan into key categories

    How Angie broke down roadblocks such as raising money as a female founder and the struggles she still encounters today

    The key to finding a team is looking for good people who care about the purpose and investing in them
